May possibly buy a mini farm next year and would love some advice.
This isn't exactly an hs question, but I know quite a few of you ladies have farms, and those do have direct hs benefits. :)
We're currently wrapping up the last of the updates to our home. We've been talking for years about moving where we would have five or more acres, and it seems like a much better & easier option now that both of our daughters are homeschooled. It would be so nice to have a huge garden, our own animals, and participate in 4H.
Sorry this is so broad a question, but what should we think of? We'd love to have two or more wool-bearing animals (we've been 'spinning' our own yarn with a drop spindle). Initially we were thinking of sheep but llamas are incredibly soft and seem brighter too.
Can chickens be kept in a coop with a big fenced yard area? My SIL's are loose, but I'd like to keep the areas by the trampoline & play set clean. Do you have to have a rooster?
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!
